Maybe it's just me but the 606's are more tiring than the street tires.
Maybe it has something to do with the vibration?

Troy,
Thanks for leading us around today. It's nice to just follow once in a while instead of having a clue as to where I am headed.
Too bad I wussed out on the steep hill. Had I known the road was down there, I would have taken it down. The ride back up looked a little too difficult for the little blue mule. Good ride today guys and I'm glad Matt rode out his little episode with no more than pucker-butt and a faster heartbeat. Skilled rider

Anytime. Don't get rid of the Blue Mule til SandalScout gets a bid in on it. He is one of the few people I know that can actually ride better than their motorcycle will let them.

I truly don't think that's true, but, if it is, I don't think I want to upgrade! I need all of the excuses I can get! haha

Cool to see a bunch of us got to get out and ride this weekned.

The Wifey was out of town so I got lucky and rolled both days

SV on Saturday:























Gave to old girl a much needed bath and suited up the SMs this morning.
By the time I got it all worked out it was 1pm....perfect time to go for a little ride:










While I was getting the tag, I looked down and saw this :

















As soon as I pulled out of the driveway on the SMs I was all smiles.
TJ..... Now I can see why so many DRZ guys punch it out to 440.
That bike on those wheels screams to be ridden fast.
I'm not much of a street rider, so it took me a while to get comfortable.
I've still got a ways to go before I'm real comfortable on them.
Just not used to hitting corners that fast

I did it again.

Big DR650 swapped for a DRZ.

IHF, holler when you're group buying 606's again.

Sorry man. Leaving Friday. Riding back toward Nashville on Sunday though. Be sure to get there early on Sat if possible. It's a day of riding...all types. We'll save you a spot at the campfire.

New bike! WooHoo! I figured you'd get something more suitable to get you to/fro Knoxville a little quicker.
